Spring has come

The white dandelions in my house welcomed the spring with blooming.

It's the first day of April, and also sakura season has come in Japan.

The Japanese Meteorological Agency said Monday that the country's capital was officially in bloom.

But this year, the usual excitement "Hanami (cherry blossoms viewing)" has been overshadowed by the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the northeast coast, as well as the ongoing nuclear crisis.

This forbearance is a kind of Japanese cultures; to celebrate the arrival of spring or to have a drunken orgy seem to be inappropriate in this serious situation we're facing now, and we also think it's so rude to the victims.

Exactly the annual orgy under the full-blooming sakura this year is going too far, but our happy feeling that occurs naturally in our mind when we see the beautiful sakura is sure to be a hope for our future.

In this sakura season, I'll upload some sakura pictures and sakura songs on my blog.

I hope that everyone feel something heart-warming from my pictures or songs.
